were talking about the anti-obesity bush and michelle obama talked about her daughter's bmi being too high. the problem is, the president at the beginning had a goal of keeping kids out of politics, that's a laudable goal and worthy goal. i think he's right about that. the problem is the president when his back was up against the wall issue after issue used references to his other children and as so many other politicians did, use children period and he did that today. the n.r.a. point is about it's a double standard. the obama daughters get protection, of course they get protection, that's not revealing any substantive information, but why shouldn't other families get the same type of protection for their children, not secret service people, but gun protection or self-defense. i think that's the point they were trying to make. >> any objection for the presidents and republicans and democrats have been used for photo opes and the children, and i've seen the president stand up with soldiers, injured soldiers. >> the children of injured soldiers i know bush has probably done that as wel

. >>> battles of the second term. lawmakers talking about what president obama faces. watch this. seems like to me it is a lot like the old combativeness. remember the president said during the campaign that you can't solve problems from inside washington. there is only one guy that can actually lead in washington in a way that can find a solution to big problems and that is the president. he speaks in general terms. he likes the executive order approach a whole lot the better than the legislative approach. >> well, i think there is again where i think common ground does exist on the need to reduce the deficit in a balanced way that is going to help the economy grow amongst democrats on the hill and a few republicans. the barrier to the progress is not the president. we need to see more republicans in congress willing to compromise. >> there you have it. that is the grounds for the discussion that is going to be going on for some time i would expect. joining me now the anchor of "fox news sunday," chrisuaual wallace. good to be with you on a sunday, which is really your day. it strikes me an

't use that in talking to a reporter because the humor that was done on the barack obama campaign's tumbler and all of those things, i loved it. >> but it could be off message. you go through these intense campaign, you've got thousands of e-mails then you unplugged no internet for a week. what did youern from that experience, harper? >> i set out -- i realized i was addicted to e-mail. i think we all tra v that. i was at dinner with my wife and i was like "just a second." >> what are you talking about? i don't know what you mean! >> so i realized that we went from getting thousands of e-mails to suddenly like ten and it was a little bit -- i think there's a lot of ego in technology and so it's a little bit like i was like aren't i important? what happened? what happened? >> so you decided to opt out? >> i wanted to just put a distance between that part of my life and what was coming up next because i figured it's going to ramp up again but i wanted to have this tiny bit of time where i could just read. >> tell our viewers what was the best thing you read when you unplugged? >> i

veterans no longer enlisted in the military. president obama has rolled out a new round of talks with republicans on raising the government's borrowing limit in return for cuts to government spending. the u.s. faces a new deadline of potentially defaulting on its debt next month unless the debt ceiling can be increased. republicans have maintained their stance that any borrowing hike must be offset by slashing government spending. add is what does this conference on monday, obama called the republican demand unacceptable. >> republicans in congress have two choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly of america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leveraged to be used. the full faith and credit of the u.s. is not a bargaining chip. >> the death toll from the syrian government airstrike on a northern town has reached at least 20 people in addition to around 100 wounded. the victims were gathered in the

towards the country's spending limit once again, folks. you know what that means. talking about time to raise the debt ceiling, right? president obama warned he will not enter into another game of brinkmanship as he referred to it over the debt sealing with republicans. >> the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is in fact a safe bet. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. martha: a lot of talk about the president's demeanor at that news conference yesterday. we'll get into that a little bit more coming up but for now does this really come down to an issue of raising the spending limit or defaulting on our credibility as the president has talked about. let's bring in stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on fox business network. so, stuart, you feel the way he is framing this is incorrect? >> ye
's absolutely right. everyone is talking now about al qaeda's new refuge across northern africa but how is the u.s. military, how is the obama administration in this coming up four years going to go after this new al qaeda refuge? these are very remote areas. the u.s. military has very few forces in the region and, look, they are going to need permission of countries to go in there if they are going to go into these places. algeria has made it clear it doesn't want help. and libya is it a country that basically has no coherent national military force, a lot of militias running many parts of libya. so to go after al qaeda, it's a nice set of words but a promise that may be very hard to live up to, wolf. >> certainly will be, barbara. thank you. >>> an american worker at the algerian gas facility tells cnn he escaped on the first day of the siege by islamic terrorists. mark cobb, believed to be a resident of texas, told cnn in a message that he's safe after escaping with some algerian staffers. according to his linkedin pain, he's manager of a joint venture in algeria. >>> other news right now, it
in the sky, this is common talk on the right, his presidency and barack obama and some of his issues. what i'm surprised by, and i respect mark a lot, there's so much whining going on here coming from the right about barack obama now fighting hard for the things that he believes in. you guys thought he was a wimp. you guys didn't think he was going to fight for the the stuff he cared about and now that he's fighting, you're whining about it and that's a sign of a losing political party. >> megyn: go ahead, mark. >> i'm not whining about anything, unlike his immediate predecessors, barack obama is not interested in bipartisan. compare him to george bush and bill clinton. george bush reached across the aisle with ted kennedy for the the no child left behind and bill clinton reached out to republicans and worked with them to pass the north american free trade agreement over objection of majority of democrats. where are barack obama's bipartisan achievement and legislatures he passed working with republicans against democrats? not a single issue he stakes a claim against his own party for the go
. opponents of gun control will be meeting and talking coordinating their efforts on a regular basis. the question how effectively will they do it? the advantage of using obama for america is, is has a gigantic list of people and know a lot about them and how to motivate them and get them out. bill: i still don't know if republicans can counter that. what they found out in november, these people know how to reach their voters! that republicans could not even account for. >> but remember the purpose here. it is not to get that person out to vote. it is to get that person to influence a member of congress to go their way. my point is this, if you're a member of congress who is republican you're sitting here saying these are not local people whose votes we are trying to get. these are partisans. i dompblt need to pay attention. if you're a democrat in awkward place, red district, red state and put awkward place by your president you're saying what the heck are they doing? don't they understand? i can't be for this. bill: we'll watch the points you make especially on the ethics matter. a
